- Bears could make play for Garappolo. But now so could Cleveland after acquiring Osweiller, who Cleveland could package with picks to the Pats in exchange for Garappolo.
- Cousins says he wants to be traded, but he is signing his franchise tender. So is his signing the tender mean he plays for Wash next season, or does that just clear a hurdle so he can be traded. I really don't know. I'm asking.
This ESPN report says that Houston made out big by dumping Osweiler to where GM Rick Smith has freed up a lot of cap space to go after another QB (whom ever that might be...Romo? Garoppolo? Draft pick?). The only two QBs Houston has on it's roster right now is Savage & Weeden.
Houston believes they're one QB away from winning it all, and Osweiler wasn't the man in their mind. Now Osweiler's laying a foundation of a journeyman QB, Lol.
Yes ol Ozzie shoulda stayed in Denver. Good read in that link and good point. Now Houston just needs to fix the QB situation.
As far as I know Cousins will only be Washington's for the 2017 season unless they franchise him again next year. Judging by the fact that the 49ers just signed Hoyer and Barkley to short term contracts most people assume that the 49ers will make a play for Cousins next year where they won't have to pay the guaranteed money he will be paid this year but you would think that Cousins would not leave Washington without a long term lucrative deal or a franchise tag from the 49ers anyway so the 49ers will have to pay for him anyway and Cousins wants his pay day. Washington have said they don't want to trade him and the 49ers have already committed themselves for this year anyway. Depending on who you believe unless the 49ers draft a gun QB which is improbable, Cousins and Shanahan want to reunite. Cousins obviously wants to leave now but it's not going to happen. How this effects Washington in the 2017 season remains to be seen but it's not a good look for the organization or their number one QB.
